CentOS: Another MySQL daemon already running with the same unix socket

If you have ever performed a hard reboot on a CentOS server, you would have noticed that a handful of things can get a bit out of tune.

One of these things is the MySQL server daemon. It would not start automatically, and when you try using:

sudo service mysqld restart

...it gives you the following error message:

Another MySQL daemon already running with the same unix socket.

A quick method to bring your site back online, is to execute the following command:

sudo mv /var/lib/mysql/mysql.sock /var/lib/mysql/mysql.sock.bak

Followed by:

sudo service mysqld start

The same philosophy probably applies to other flavours of Linux, but the location of the lock file probably differs.
